The Internet is not only one of the best places to learn anything, but it also is a very large database of entertainment contents including movies, games, music, and more. Many of them are even freely accessible for everyone. While mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets can access those contents with ease, desktop computer or full-sized laptop still provides the best gaming experience with its big screen and more processing power.

Bigger Screen, Better Viewing Experience
A desktop computer and laptop are still the best in terms of processing power and multimedia compatibility compared to mobile devices including tablets and smartphones. A desktop computer is continuously connected to power source, while laptop has longer battery life than smartphones do. The only major drawback is that they are considerably big. A computer also plays almost all types of multimedia file formats. Unfortunately, a computer is not exactly the best device to watch every movie with your families, meaning you need to stream the movies to bigger TV screen standing in your living room, so everyone can enjoy the fun time together. You need a simple wireless PC to TV adapter which delivers full HDMI and 3D quality, and the Nyrius ARIES Pro (NPCS550) is able to stream uncompressed 3D and full 1080p audio/video from a computer to your big TV wirelessly. It is therefore possible to play movies from YouTube, NetFlix or any high-definition movies from any broadcasters directly on your TV.
Play Games on TV
Another advantage of a full-sized computer is its processing power that allows you to play even the most specification-demanding games flawlessly. You can give your computer bigger RAM, more powerful processor, dedicated audio and video graphics, and even faster hard drive. Nyrius ARIES Pro can even stream your game play to a TV so you have better gaming experience with bigger screen without any lag. You can even connect the transmitter to popular game consoles such as XBOX 360, XBOX One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. As a matter of fact, the ARIES Pro (NPCS550) is one of the longest range transmitter and receiver systems in the market; it streams up to 160ft away from the source through walls and ceilings. Furthermore, it is compatible with all major computer operating system. As a matter of fact, the system is a plug and play streaming media player, meaning no software is required for installation. You can plug the receiver to any HDTV and 3D TV with HDMI port. With the right tools such as wireless game controllers, you can play stunning games without even looking at your computer screen.
All Accessories are Included
As previously mentioned, all the necessary accessories for the streaming is included in the package. This wireless PC to TV (Projector) converter brings a transmitter, a receiver, HDMI cable (5ft long), power adapter, two Velcro strips, external IR receiver, HDMI adapter, USB cable, and female USB adapter. In some cases, HDMI port from the source device (such as game console), will not fit perfectly with the transmitter because it can block other ports; you can use HDMI adapter in this case to solve the problem.

What Other Customers Had To Say
Even the most sophisticated wireless PC to TV system has its flaws, and the ARIES Pro NPCS550 by Nyrius is not an exception. The biggest drawback is of course the price; when compared to entry-level devices, the price tag is quite a steep. But then again, the ARIES Pro stream Full 1080p HD and even 3D quality audio/video and games, while the less expensive alternatives mostly provide basic media streaming only. HDMI is getting more popular and it is arguably the standard of high definition multimedia contents nowadays. With the added functionality of streaming HDMI and 3D, the ARIES Pro (NPCS550) is actually worth it. Another possible drawback is the signal range which only reaches 160ft maximum distance. For those who have less clear line of sight inside their homes, this range is possibly lees than required for best streaming quality. However, this range is a reasonable distance for most homes, and the included Velcro strips can actually help users position the receiver in better orientation allowing it to receive the transmitted signals better.
Considering that ARIES Pro (NPCS550) requires no cable to stream multimedia contents and games, its ability to deliver HDMI and 3D quality audio/video is actually surprising. A wireless PC to TV converter is commonly expected to perform worse than non-wireless counterpart, but the ARIES Pro NPCS550 by Nyrius meets the expectations. If wireless streaming performance is the main priority when playing HDMI or games, then this streaming media player is one of the best choices available to date and the price is certainly not a deal breaker. Please also put in mind that ARIE Pro does not limit of what you can stream from computer and game console to HDTV.
